Summary A study of the problems of schooling for Mexican Americans in the Southwestern states presents data gathered from interviews with educators during visits to schools and to special projects throughout the Southwest, and identifies three interrelated factors influencing Mexican American children in their schooling: the nature of the diverse Chicano subcultures, the kind and quality of available education, and the nature of local and regional social systems offering equal or unequal educational opportunities.
